New Beginnings

The final seconds of the passing year
rang out in frosty echoes through the night.
Disturbed from slumber, tiny snowflakes stirred
and showered in the moon’s blue-silver light.

With distant sound of revellers in song
befell a mood of melancholy heart,
where roads to nowhere rolled out dark and long
and neither moon nor stars could light impart.

Beyond the stroke of midnight, silent mist
in fingers twirled and beckoned right then left,
to travel forth toward an unknown tryst,
or walk the journey back to life bereft.

Unhappiness entwined with pain and tears
now fraternized with hope upon the breeze.

    I really do think that you have this signature eloquence in your writes, Sharon (haha don't get tired of me saying that pls!) & you just mix melancholy & beauty so well, *sighs* yet again even if it's not the new year ;) crazy that it's past the middle of the year already? & you are right, it really is sad how the past isn't always what we remember it to be...& I'm definitely mulling over that blackout poetry contest! how about you when's your contest ;)?? -- nikko :)

    A lovely write. To venture into the unknown or go back to a life of pain and boredom.

    The passing year enters the new, these lovely words described by you. A new day beckons as the minutes tick by, into a New Year lucky souls will fly >> James
